Encyclopedia of complexity and systems science by Robert A Meyers( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work includes carefully selected, peer-reviewed contributions of a level far superior to that found on the world wide web. It contains contributions on the mathematical (e.g. probability and statistics, graph theory, complex network theory, game theory, nonlinear differential equations, cellular automata, synergetics, perturbation theory, fractals, etc.) and modeling basis (agent based modeling and simulation, soft computing, granular computing, data mining and knowledge discovery, computational complexity theory, artificial cells, etc.) for approaching complex systems, at a high academic level. Also present are contributions describing progress using these tools in physics, econometrics, ecosystems, climate change, weather prediction, nanoelectronics, complex networks, quantum computing, chemistry, astrophysics, geophysics, systems biology, physical biology, bioinformatics, medicine, system dynamics, engineering, control and dynamical systems, and robotics as well as social, economics and political sciences
Epigenetic regulation and epigenomics( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epigenetics is a term in biology referring to heritable traits that do not involve changes in the underlying DNA sequence of the organism. Epigenetic traits exist on top of or in addition to the traditional molecular basis for inheritance. The "epigenome" is a parallel to the word "genome," and refers to the overall epigenetic state of a cell. Cancer and stem cell research have gradually focused attention on these genome modifications. The molecular basis of epigenetics involves modifications to DNA and the chromatin proteins that associate with it. Methylation, for example, can silence a near

Computational Complexity : Theory, Techniques, and Applications by Robert A Meyers( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex systems are systems that comprise many interacting parts with the ability to generate a new quality of collective behavior through self-organization, e.g. the spontaneous formation of temporal, spatial or functional structures.℗¡ These systems are often characterized by extreme sensitivity to initial conditions as well as emergent behavior that are not readily predictable or even completely deterministic.℗¡ The recognition that the collective behavior of the whole system cannot be simply inferred from an understanding of the behavior of the individual components has led to the development of numerous sophisticated new computational and modeling tools with applications to a wide range of scientific, engineering, and societal phenomena. Computational Complexity: Theory, Techniques and Applications presents a detailed and integrated view of the theoretical basis, computational methods, and state-of-the-art approaches to investigating and modeling of inherently difficult problems whose solution requires extensive resources approaching the practical limits of present-day computer systems.℗¡ This comprehensive and authoritative reference examines key components of computational complexity, including cellular automata, graph theory, data mining, granular computing, soft computing, wavelets, and more
Mathematics of complexity and dynamical systems by Robert A Meyers( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematics of Complexity and Dynamical Systems is an authoritative reference to the basic tools and concepts of complexity, systems theory, and dynamical systems from the perspective of pure and applied mathematics. Complex systems are systems that comprise many interacting parts with the ability to generate a new quality of collective behavior through self-organization, e.g. the spontaneous formation of temporal, spatial or functional structures. These systems are often characterized by extreme sensitivity to initial conditions as well as emergent behavior that are not readily predictable or even completely deterministic. The more than 100 entries in this wide-ranging, single source work provide a comprehensive explication of the theory and applications of mathematical complexity, covering ergodic theory, fractals and multifracticals, dynamical systems, perturbation theory, solitons, systems and control theory, and related topics. Mathematics of Complexity and Dynamical Systems is an essential reference for all those interested in mathematical complexity, from undergraduate and graduate students up through professional researchers
Extreme environmental events : complexity in forecasting and early warning by Robert A Meyers( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Extreme Environmental Events is an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the basic tenets of complexity and systems theory, as well as the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems, to the prediction, monitoring, and evaluation of major natural phenomena affecting life on earth. These phenomena are often highly destructive, and include earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, climate change, and weather. Early warning, damage, and the immediate response of human populations to these phenomena are also covered from the point of view of complexity and nonlinear systems. In 61 authoritative, state-of-the art articles, world experts in each field apply such tools and concepts as fractals, cellular automata, solitons game theory, network theory, and statistical physics to an understanding of these complex geophysical phenomena"--Page 4 of cover
